Trump Conflict Plan Woefully Inadequate

Common Cause

President-elect Trump’s planned arrangement with the Trump Organization falls far short of what’s necessary to avoid conflicts of interest and Emoluments Clause violations that will dog his administration and severely undermine the public’s faith in government. Common Cause has called on President-elect Trump to divest from the Trump Organization and put his wealth into a blind trust managed independently from him. Instead, he’s decided to retain full ownership of the Trump Organization and have two of his sons run it—no divestment and no independence.
